Why would open source even matter if making changes were discouraged?

Not so much that "making changes" are discouraged, but when the person ignores the advice
given by more experienced persons, trying to tell them not to try making certain changes
because it all ready is known that those changes do not work, or cause damage,...
If you want to waste your time experimenting and crashing your system , that is fine, seems
pointless to me, but each to their own. What is discouraged, is that then, after being warned, and ignoring the advise, they return, crying, "oh know, how do I fix it now? " and that is wasting other peoples time, and energy, especially when the questioneer ignores the answers.
Any way , it does not take long to see, it is pointless to try to explain things to a person that
refuses to listen. Do your own research, do what you want, change and modify all the source code in your system, ...unless you know enough about codeing,programming, and how depenencies and libraries work, it will usually result in something that does not work, so
you then have to re-install, down load new ,original source, etc. But anyway do what you want, enjoy your self.
